The world's first telephoto tilt/shift lens, useful for a wide variety of applications, from merchandise and food photography to portraiture and nature photography. The 6-element, 5 group Gauss-type optical system achieves outstanding imaging performance and natural-looking blur. Focusing is possible down to an extremely close shooting distance of 0.5m/1.6ft., enabling effective close-up photography. A maximum magnification of 0.29x is available. Use of reverse tilt to adjust the position of depth of field allows the photographer to achieve unique and innovative photography unattainable with normal lenses even at large apertures.
